    The Russians hacking into U.S. treasury? How else would Trump pay his debt to Putin for the 2016 election?

      @Alfred Basurto absolutely agree. Wonder how long we would last at our jobs if we decided to just do nothing. No daily briefings???? He doesn’t care about the security of this country. Give him the boot….NOW. Surely, we cannot be afraid if hurting his feelings. Let’s not forget…he doesn’t have any.

    • After I read this statement it was easy for me to see what happens when sisters and brothers make a baby together lol intelligent people are one thing but common sense is totally needing a comeback

    • 👍Ecactly!

    • You took the words right out of my mouth.

    • Either that or Rob the FEDERAL RESERVE!
      Trump was planning something huge, fortunately He got those tiny little hands 🙌
      Stuck in the cookie jar. 😆

  2. Gee i wonder if Trump was hoping to have all documents that will be incriminating disappear magically.

    • “I’m sorry, but that information is under audit”…./s

      Gary D: Do you really need to wonder? I would take your comment as fact.

    • Most likely that was what he was hoping for but his boss Putin has no further use for him so Putin will through him under the bus as Rump does to all people when he is done with them what a guy two peas in a pod they deserve each other, most likely Rump will move to Russia now that his work is done in America.

      @Ernest B – Our CIA would never let him move there. His plane would disappear over the ocean like Amelia Earhart. His Secret Service detail will follow him for many, many years whether he (or they) like it or not. Unless he ends up in prison then I don’t know:)

  3. they say nothing because they gave putin the key. burning down the house

    • @Paula Lewis It blows my mind too.

    • @Pedro Daniel Lopes Ferreira I’m sure it will be awful

      @Bot Assasin In Moscow Russia 2018 after the mundial football,Putin and Trump as well have a meeting together alone. Except the translator no one was in the room,even Pence and Lavrove were outside, for one hour.
      After Putin gave the ball of 2018 mudial to Melania as a gift.
      It was the most embarrassing
      moments for all the world.
      Or maybe was in Elsinki Finland,i don’t remember well.

      @ΑΝΑΣΤΑΣΙΑ ΞΑΝΘΟΠΟΥΛΟΥ that’s why he acted like he did. Changing key players to side by him on the supreme court, starting to spread doubt and fear on the electoral system, and ultimately downplaying the virus to keep the economy afloat.
      I’m still blown away when I see people, average Americans, still supporting him. But I get it! They have been fed a diet of conspiracy theories, fear and distress over the past 4 years…

      @Pedro Daniel Lopes Ferreira Yes you have right,i followed Trump’s campaign from 2015,i find him dangerous for USA,i was sure that he never done that things who said in his campaign but he did even more.
      I am European and i couldn’t understand why most republicans still following him after 4 years who never did anything good, especially with Covid.
      They follow him like a god, they said that he is the better president of USA.
      So brainwashed million morons are dangerous.
      In this stage I believe that they are more mempers of the cult than republicans.

  4. Trump’s Administration is a Shame for the country…..

    Trump and Putin have the codes.

  6. RIGHT AFTER tRump fires the cybersecurity chief.
    Interesting timing that…..

    • @Mark Fukkerberg I believe it.

      Do YOU all know what having a truly godless comedic feminist Schadens-Freude looks like? When one of the most megalomanic delusional racist fascist twits wannabe theocratic Banana Republican state begins to get hammered and outright destroyed from within by its own massively accumulated Cyber weapons and it’s other delusional weaponry.
      And then certainly when it finally proves that a mere disgruntled high school girl was behind the whole cyber takedown of the richest corrupt military nation!
      You’ll all see that bigly Schaden-Freude in my face just in that Moment! 😊

      @Worm dude, MLK never said that… you are just vomiting faux lines already proven lies. Do your self a favour Darius, go have some fun in the barn with you hunt/sister/cousin Mary Jay, and then go have a beer with the boy’s to the town’s bar.

    • I bet security knew but we’re under Trump’s orders to keep it quiet lest they be fired

  8. This whole administration hasn’t cared about the people, this pox starts with trump and his Grifter family.
    This doesn’t surprise anyone.
    Standard operations from administration…

  9. Trump is always quiet when it comes to Russia , and he accuses everyone else of being in cahoots with them

  10. OBrien is another taker, like his boss.

    Imagine what trump paying him.

  12. Patty Viviendo | December 16, 2020 at 2:29 AM | Reply

    The trump administration probably trying to hide what they have stolen from the American people and they blamed hackers.

  13. Silent…that’s because everyone in this administration was yelling “Fore” at Mud Lago.

  14. Did you say Treasury? Let me see, Trump+Russia = American Taxpayers Money.
    No brainier

  15. For sure Russians are trying to hide any traces of their dealings with Trump.

  16. Yorthani Kolis | December 16, 2020 at 2:53 AM | Reply

    Who would have guessed at this stage that anyone in Trump’s administration would have to do some work for their grifting?

  17. I’m surprised O’Brien actually pretended that he cared about this.

  18. Gregory Holmes | December 16, 2020 at 6:01 AM | Reply

    The Trump crime syndicate have no shame…..
    Deplorables every one of them.

  19. Russia if you’re LISTENING, PLEASE release Trump’s tax returns!!!!!

  20. This is not just incompetence.
    Someone left a door open for the Russians.
